weren't there to finance a bailout or loans for the auto industry, and obama took the u.s. government into it and got them on their feet. it was a very successful venture. and the people out in michigan and ohio in particular remember it. >> indeed. steve, why do you think romney talked about building up the navy, aside from the fact he was concerned about virginia and new hampshire? >> i think he was desperate for distinction, for what would sound like politically palatable distinctions. >> didn't someone say to him 1916 ships and so on are not comparable to, you know, submarines that carry cruise missiles? >> this is a symptom of a candidate in a party that have really when it comes to foreign policy have taken the last four years off. the very crude calculation in the republican party when barack obama was elected was that the economy was collapsing and that they were going to oppose everything and that when the economy wasn't healed four years later, they would be able to say, looking he's failed. there's really no role for foreign policy in that other than to say obama has failed

helping the u.s. mission there. people whose lives may now be in jeopardy. republican congressman darrell issa who chairs the house oversight and government reform committee, released 166 pages of sensitive communications on friday. foreign policy magazine quotes an unnamed state department official who says no one there had a chance to vet the material beforehand. what's more, this is the same darrell issa who some would say hypocritically derided wikileaks almost two years ago for doing exactly what he's done now. >> the kind of transparency we need is not to have somebody outing what is said by diplomats in private, and we need to change that and that's going to be a big part of our committee's oversight is to get that right so diplomats can do their job with confident dense. >> the kind of transparency we need is not to have somebody outing what is said by diplomats in private. fine words, mr. issa. a pity you don't seem to remember them in an election year. joining us thousand is democratic congressman elijah cummings, the oversight committee's ranking democrat. >> good to be with yo

, when he came to the u.s., he worked as a community organizer, which is a socialized structure. >> right. well, despite the president being a kenyan indonesian pot smoking communist, a republican general has to endorse him because they're the same color. they're brothers from another mother. it couldn't possibly be that a former secretary of state actually put some thought into his endorsement, could it? >> not only am i not comfortable with what governor romney is proposing for his economic plan, i have concerns about his views on foreign policy. sometimes i don't sense that he has thought through these issues as thoroughly as he should have and he gets advice from his campaign staff that he then has to adjust or modify as he goes along. >> are you sure that general powell is saying it's because the president is black? i'm just not hearing that. >> there are other issues as well, not just the economy and foreign policy. i'm more comfortable with president obama and his administration when it comes to issues like what are we going to do about climate? what are we going to do about immigr

it perfectly well that that is not the way you conduct u.s./chinese relations, to attack them on the first day of his presidency. >> but is it pandering? >> total pander. >> or sticking up for what he believes. >> he doesn't believe that for a nano second, and none of his friends believe it. not a single one of his friends in his crowd at bain capital, outside of bain capital believes that it's the right thing to do to declare china a currency manipulator on day one. i have talked to many of them and they scoff at it behind his back and they know that he's just saying this to get elected president but ots not going to work because so many ohio jobs are dependent on chinese investment and people know that in other cases, as in sensata, he has willingly been part of jobs that shipped jobs overvaes. >> i don't disagree with you, there's no question that the chinese economy and the american economy are like hand in glove when you look at the steel dumping when you look at what china does to its currency, let's call a spade a spade, they do manipulate their currency and when it comes -- they are no

the consequences of a powerful storm of historic proportions. in sandy's wake at least 28 are dead in the u.s. dozens of homes lost to fire or swept to sea. mass transit stalled, and some 8 million without power. the president has been hunkered down at the white house declaring states of emergency, working with governors, and helping to coordinate relief efforts. just an hour ago he traveled to the headquarters of the red cross pledging for support for what's expected to be a lengthy recovery. >> my message to the federal government, no bureaucracy, no red tape, get resources where they're needed as fast as possible, as hard as possible, and for the duration because the recovery process obviously in a place like new jersey is going to take a significant amount of time. >> indeed. the president will travel to hard-hit new jersey tomorrow, and just a week from election day the president's challenger was hardly content to sit on the sidelines. for his part, mitt romney tried to turn an ohio campaign rally into a relief rally. collecting donations for storm victims with a viewing of his campaign

the atrocities to stop, and they'd prefer that the outcome be favorable to u.s. interests, but i don't think there's any desire to get into a proxy war. >> indeed. michael, the president urges assad to step down. he supports arab efforts in their opposition to the syrian government. given the instability of libya and egypt, isn't the president's cautious approach to syria the right one unless, and i repeat, unless we want to get involved in another war? >> hi, martin. well, to be honest with you, i think there is a fairly narrow range of disagreement between the two men here because, as you know, if we think about this kind of a war and we think of all of our range of possible interventions, providing or asking our allies to provide a few more weapons is a relatively modest step along the spectrum. we're not talking about american planes creating a no-fly zone in the romney speech. we're not talking about creation of any kind of a humanitarian protected ground zone up in the north -- >> but, michael, i'm sorry to interrupt you, mike, but we wouldn't expect any details from this man because h

rob the u.s. treasury? i mean, this guy's playing by a completely different set of rules than the rest of us have to play by. our labor income gets taxed as labor income. his labor income gets taxed as an investment. it's a rigged system and romney never wants to lead a tax reform that will continue that rigging out into the future. >> what do you think the reaction would be tonight, mike, if romney decided that the way to win this election would be to literally toss the 20% across the board tax cut out the window and say, actually i'm going to amend that in some way? >> he would risk a huge backlash. it might help him with the middle. >> but he'd win the election, wouldn't he? >> could. it would also raise the flip-flopping issue which he's done pretty well despite the attempts of the obama campaign of putting to bed since he picked paul ryan. the last few months he's not been dealing too much with the expedient charge because he's identified himself with paul ryan. people kind of know where he's coming from. if he dodges it at that point, i mean, he throws it all back into the mix. >
